Happy up your hair

Tired of how you wear your hair, but problems from frizz to limp locks holding you back from mixing things up? We’ve got the looks that’ll fix niggles and bust boredom in minutes. Time to flip your style…


ands up if you wear your hair in the same style day in, day out. We’re with you. We’d all like to be more playful, but often ‘hair mares’ (anything from locks being lifeless to frizzy) can hold us back from experimenting. But turning drab hair into fab fair doesn’t have to be hard work.  And no, you don’t need the skills of a top stylist or a salon’s worth of products.

We’ve got the hairstyle shake-ups that require one (yes, just one!) styling product. ‘By choosing the right one for your hair type and concern, and using it correctly, you’ll get the results you want,’ explains hairdresser and global lead stylist for All Things Hair, Dan Lynes. ‘Not only will you save time, but you’ll avoid overloading hair with product, which means you’ll get more days’ wear from your style.’ Genius. Pick the look for you below and flip it for our simple how to…

HAIRSTYLIST HACK: ‘Thoroughly towel-dry hair before applying the product,’ advises Dan. ‘If applied to sopping wet hair, a lot will get lost when the hair is drying and it won’t be as effective.’

HAIRSTYLIST HACK: ‘When applying product to textured and curly hair, start with a little and layer up slowly, so you don’t weigh it down unnecessarily,’ says Dan.

HAIRSTYLIST HACK: ‘Mousse-based products and fine hair are styling BFFs,’ says Dan, ‘but always blow-dry mousse in. If you leave it to dry naturally hair can feel sticky.’

HAIRSTYLIST HACK: ‘This look is better when relaxed, so don’t do it in front of a mirror,’ suggests Dan. ‘That way you won’t be focused on making it too perfect!’

HAIRSTYLIST HACK: ‘For more control when plaiting, secure your hair in a pony with a band. Once you’ve finished, remove it,’ says Dan. Game changer.

HAIRSTYLIST HACK: ‘Picking the right size brush is key when blow-drying for volume,’ says Dan. ‘You need to be able to wrap your hair round the entire brush at least once for maximum bounce.’
